L'amour n'échoue jamais

Love is patient…
Love is kind…
It does not envy…
It does not boast…
It is not proud…
It is not rude…
It is not self-seeking…
It is not easily angered…
It keeps no record of wrongs…
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth…
It always protects..
Always trusts…
Always hopes…
Always perseveres….

LOVE NEVER FAILS…

Contrary to popular belief, Love is a choice, not just a feeling…and the scripture above so eloquently reminds us of that fact. Because you may not FEEL like doing any of the above..or you may not have good feelings towards the object of your love. All the above you have to choose..they don't just happen.


Real love is not about how you feel..because everyone knows that in relationships/friendships…it doesn't always feel good and just because it does feel good..doesn't necessarily mean that it is "real love." Real love never stops choosing inspite of the situation or despite how it feels….And no I'm not advocating that people stay in abusive or adulterous relationships…just wanted to clarify that….

I think this is especially true with children…..It doesn't always feel good to be a parent. But I choose to keep loving them despite how I feel and you know what most kids keep loving their parents despite who or what we are. I think all the foster/adoptive parents out there can attest that a lot of their foster /adoptive kids still have a profound love for their (bio) parents, even if they never met them..(As it should be)

I have decided to get a tattoo for my 29th birthday (Dec. 6, 2008) that says: LOVE NEVER FAILS (IN French): L'amour n'échoue jamais as a proclamation to the belief I sincerely cling to that Love Never fails.. Right now I have only seen this love displayed in God and a very few select family members and friends….but the vast majority of society can't even begin to grasp this concept…because most have the false mindset that LOVE IS A FEELING..No, Love is a verb (an action word)…..it is a choice….when you stop choosing to walk in love…it is no longer real love…despite how you feel.

But anyway, back to my tattoo….I always wanted a tattoo and I couldn't decide what to get….I was going to get the boys names…but then I was like what if I have like 8 kids..then I'll have to get all their names tattooed all over my body…and I was just thinking the other day and I decided that I want to get: LOVE NEVER FAILS….so when I get it done I'll post a pic

For my 30th birthday (GASP!!) next year I plan to go on a Hawaiian cruise.. Anyone want to join me…so I don't have to go alone?
